Daytona International Speedway has notified us that they discovered several cases of improper dumping of waste fluids this past weekend. They found 3 or 4 instances of used motor oil dumped into trash cans in the Blue Garages. This is a very serious matter to the Region and to the Speedway since it is a significant violation of environmental protection regulations.
Both Daytona and Sebring provide facilities for the proper disposal of waste fluids – and these facilities must be used by any competitor disposing of such materials. If you have fluids to dump, and you’re not sure where these facilities are, please ask any regional or race official for direction.
This is a very serious issue – and any race teams violating these regulations will be asked to pack up and leave the event immediately.
